Edible Food at Yonge/Eglinton

  • j

Can anyone suggest some moderate and inexpensive restaurant suggestions in the Yonge/Eglinton area? My wife and I moved to Toronto fairly recently and eat pretty much every type of food. We've tried a lot of the restaurants in our neighborhood and generally not been impressed by the quality of the food. Can anyone make some suggestions? Please don't suggest Grazie. Thanks,

Jonathan

        Zucca - I was there about a month ago. Truly excellent.

          What's the price range for 2, including wine? I found their website and menu which looks delicious, but no prices.

        Have been going to Zucca for several years. Menu changes frequently and is always good. Fresh fish is a staple. Very friendly staff and Louie, the host, is a real pro. All in all a very highly recommended place.

            Zucca, now that's great italian food. Though i have not been there in 2 years, I hear the quality is still the same. It is one of the rare examples where a non-italian owned italian restaurant is so good! Do they still have the chestnut flour pasta with wild boar ragu sauce?

        2. go further south - half way between eglinton and davisville to Stork on the Roof (on the east side at Glebe Rd)- their entrees average $20-$25.
          We were there last night for a food and wine pairing, the 2nd one they have done this year, and it was fabulous.

          2. Have you tried "Zia Piera"? It is south of Eglinton, on the west side of Yonge, between Manor and Lola. It is a friendly, family run, Italian spot. I was there last night and had perfectly cooked talapia that came with my choice of two side vegetables (I had grilled portobellos and grilled rapini) for $14.95. Their pastas & risotto are about 5.95 for small and 11.95 for large. They have a great choice of appetizers too - all well priced. I have been there a number of times and it has always been good. Give it a try!

              1. I quite enjoy "Mai Thai". Its on the West side of Yonge, North of Englinton.

                    May i suggest Zizi Trattoria, half way between Eglinton and Lawrence where the defunct Vin Brule used to be, on the west side of Yonge. The original used to be in The Annex. I was there this past summer and was happy with my dinner. Nothing out of this world but very good meal altogether and pleasant staff. Way better than Grazie.
